It’s hard getting dog training clients.
I get it.
Over the past seven years I've worked with Dog Trainer Marketing Group owner Adam G. Katz to manage Google Ads campaigns for well over 100 dog training businesses.
And I know what it feels like to be lying in bed at night wondering if you’ll ever...
Make Enough Money To Get To The Next Level With Your Dog Training Business
And when you’ve exhausted all of the “free” ways to get clients, you start to realize that you’re up against a wall:
But it’s not enough.
And you’re getting tired of hanging out at the dog park handing out business cards. Sure, you pick up a client here and there. But it’s not the type of consistent stream of new clients you need to get your dog training business to the next level.
Maybe you’re dreaming of hiring another dog trainer so you don’t have to work so hard.
Or you’d like to rent a building so you don’t have to train outside in bad weather.
Perhaps you’d like to buy a new truck or SUV or minivan to haul your dogs around in.
Whatever it is… if you don’t figure out something fast, you won’t be getting any of that fun stuff.
Heck, you might even have to go find (gasp!) a real job.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
I’ve developed a proven, “done for you” service that gets you a consistent stream of new dog training clients, each and every month. In fact, some of my dog trainer clients are emailing me to say…
“Shut It Off For The Next Couple Of Weeks So I Can Catch Up!”
According to Tampa Bay dog trainer Rick Carde, "Your Google Ads management made us over $22,000 in less than 10 days!"
Especially in this economy when both new and old dog trainers alike are dropping like flies and giving up on their dreams, it’s especially important to have a way to get an endless stream of calls from quality, high paying desperate dog owners.
“So what is it, Brendon? What should I do to get those dog owners to call me?”
I’m going to share what has been working for us.
But first I want to tell you about my friend, dog trainer Sheila Barton. (And yes-- I changed her name because she doesn’t need hundreds of you dog trainers calling and bothering her every day!)
Sheila had originally called me, depressed.
No dog training clients.
“The phone stopped ringing,” she had said. “I think I need someone to do that SEO (search engine optimization) stuff for me.”
You’re gonna get Google spanked, I told her.
“SEO has its place but you can’t build a strong foundation for your dog training business on organic search engine rankings alone. You’re flying high one month and down the next.”
“So what then?” she asked.
“Google Ads. Trust me… one good ad can change your life.“
“I’ve tried Google Ads before,” she said. “It sucked.”
I looked at her account. Sure enough, it was a mess. She was using “Google Ads Express” — Google’s “dumbed-down” version of Google Ads. It was easy to see how she had burned through a lot of cash.
“I’m not good with technology,” she said.
“I understand. And I can definitely help you,” I said.
I get amazing results with the Google Ads campaigns I manage for over 50+ other dog training companies. For every $1,000 invested we’re typically getting back $7,000 to $9,000 worth of new dog training clients.
An excellent ROI.
She was skeptical but agreed to give it a shot.
I had one pre-condition: She had to answer the phone every time it rang, if possible. And she had to return each missed call within 24 hours… but preferably on the same day.
Since she was cool with that I started to work on her Google Ads campaigns that night.
The Secret To Getting More Dog Training Clients
By the end of her first month with me her campaigns did phenomenal: She averaged 1-2 calls every other day and ended the month with nine new clients averaging $1,500 per client.
The second month we ran the campaign was in December. We figured we’d increase the budget a little in anticipation of the onslaught of callers with new Christmas puppies. But by December 10th she called me again. This time she sounded worried.
I was perplexed.
“THE CALLS CAME IN SO FAST AND FURIOUS, I PANICKED! I can’t believe it-- Suddenly I have too many clients...”
“You’ll be fine,” I said. “Just raise your prices. And hire an assistant.”
Now she’s working less and making more. Needless to say, she and her family had a very merry Christmas. And a very busy holiday season, too.
What If You Were The Most Successful Dog Trainer In Your City?
When I start managing your Google Ads campaigns, you’ll never have to worry about signing enough clients, ever again. Why? Because within the first couple of days you’ll start getting calls from:
This Is What You Need To Really Grow Your Dog Training Business
You can try managing your own Google Ads campaigns, but you’re going to run into trouble. Especially if your competition has hired somebody like me who will out rank your ads while spending less money. I’m sure you’ve known people who say to you, “I’ll just train my own dog.” And you think to yourself, “… you have no idea what you’re getting yourself into.”
It’s the same with Google Ads.
Regardless, you have better things to do than to spend months of your free time trying to learn the frustrating art and science of online marketing.
You should be outside training dogs and signing clients, not trying to figure out which “negative” keywords and “call out extensions” to use.
Does This Really Work? Here’s What Other Dog Trainers Are Saying…
** Note: Testimonials below are from both current and past clients when I was managing Google Ads campaigns with Adam. Like all businesses, sometimes clients move on because of death, divorce, change of business model, retirement, moving to another market, etc...

Thank you SO much, I was definitely a little hesitant to invest in the Google Ads at first, but I am swamped beyond what I could believe. I've had to turn all my other forms of marketing off, to keep up. We're getting about 3-5 phone calls a day, and so far I'd say 90% of the calls we've gotten have converted to demos.

From now on I guess I will just keep you updated monthly or with anything that would be extraordinarily for us!!! We LOVE you and your service.
Update: "It has been a month since 1st client from you signed up. Monthly gross income is 4 times compared to prior months. I was able to raise prices on all my programs on the first day signing up with your company due to an immediate increase in leads. Successfully selling medium and large programs over small programs because I now have a solid calendar booked ahead of me which allows me to pick and choose. After reviewing the amount of large/medium programs I sold for the next two months, price was significantly increased by me again and now I will be choosing clients I really want to work with. Just today I sold one of our largest programs with the brand new price!!" -- Yelena Pawela, West Palm Beach, Florida

"Love your work!" -- Jessica Barclay, Wheeling, West Virginia
"If you’re a dog trainer and you’re on the fence about making the investment to use Google Ads to grow your business, stop debating and get in touch with him. It will be the best investment you make. I can’t begin to tell you how his company has changed the growth and profitability of my company in just 4 months time. We lost a (different) company after 28 years due to the pandemic and he helped me pivot and get my new company profitable in just a few short months. I was not looking to start over again at 60 but I am sure glad I found you to help me get back on track to a thriving business." -- Jim Fitzgerald, Indiana
Here’s What You’ll Get...
I use a proprietary approach to managing Google Ads campaigns. Because my team and I manage accounts for many other dog trainers, it works 1000X better than what your “average” Google Ads manager does. In fact, this is the “secret sauce” that gets so many desperate dog owners to call you. And believe me-- our approach to Google Ads is a jealously guarded secret.
Which is part of the reason this is a “done for you” service.
I don’t want cheap copycats running out and copying what I’m doing. Not... in... the... plan.
An Investment In Your Dog Training Business
There are two aspects to this:
First, the management fee– which includes the setup and ongoing management of the Google Ads campaigns, including ad creation, intelligent campaign and ad group structure, ongoing A/B testing, bid management, negative keyword lists and shared negative keyword lists, monitoring which of the “money keywords” to allocate the budget toward and everything else needed to run a successful Google Ads campaign– all included for just $550/month. However– if you schedule a free consultation with me and say, “Brendon… let’s do this!” during our phone conversation then you’ll get it for the discounted price of just $499/month, cancel anytime.
But you’ll only get the discounted price if you take advantage of my generosity during our phone conversation. Now, you’re welcome to take as much time as you need to think it over. But if you’re the type of person who procrastinates and likes to put off making a decision and call us back a week or a month or a year later– then you’re paying the full price, Skippy.
So, by the time we get on the phone– be ready to take action if this seems like the type of thing that would benefit your business and your life.
The second part of this is the ad spend budget. The ad spend is the money that goes straight to Google to make the ads run. I take care of all of this for you. But how much this costs depends on how many leads you want and whether you’re in a big city, a medium-sized city or a smallish city. (You don’t want to be sending a master gun-fighter into a gun fight without enough ammunition!)
You should budget:
The math makes sense if your average lifetime customer value (how much you make from each client) is at least $1,000. Even better if it’s $1,500.
Most dog trainers need to sign only one client
to cover the entire investment--
and everything else for the month is “gravy”.
My strategies work, and I know that if we work together you’ll make money.
I know what it takes to set up and manage Google Ads campaigns to create a consistent flow of leads and new customers for your dog training business.
No Long Term Contract
I’m so confident this will work to get your phone ringing with high quality, desperate dog owners who are looking for your dog training services that I’m willing to offer it without any long term commitments.
My contract is month-to-month because I know that if we can get your account “dialed in” …I’m going to be your new best friend.
Nobody does this in the Google Ads management industry.
As you can imagine, I get a LOT of interest from this letter.
And that’s why I need you to read this next part carefully:
This Is NOT For Every Dog Trainer.
Here’s Who I CAN Help:
I’m VERY selective about who I’ll speak with and I have a strict (but reasonable) set of criteria that needs to be met in order for us to proceed.
Here it is:
And in order for us to do that, you need to have your act together.
In other words, you need to be legit. If you’re living in your van eating ramen noodles every night… this isn’t for you.
That’s it! Those are all my requirements.
Here’s What I Want You To Do Next
If you meet the criteria above and you would like to talk with me personally about getting you more leads and customers– then I’ll happily set aside some time for you.
Here’s how the process works:
First, you’ll need to schedule a call with me. Don’t worry, it’s simple and unobtrusive. Just use my calendar app and pick a day and time that works well for you.
Here’s What Will Happen After That
Once you’ve booked your free consultation, our initial call will be about 45 minutes. I'll listen to you as you explain your business and we'll see if we're a good fit for each other.
WARNING – TIME IS A FACTOR
This opportunity is extremely limited because of the nature of this offer.
See, I only accept one dog training client per market. (A market is a city or town or territory).
... Because I won’t run ads against my own clients’ ads
If another dog trainer in your city hires me before you do… tough cookies. Those are the breaks for not taking action sooner. Note: With 50-60 dog training business clients at any given time, we may or may not already have a client in your city. Please book a call with me and if I can’t immediately help you then I can put you on our waiting list so that you will get “right of first refusal” when your territory does open up.
So with that said, know that the window of opportunity won’t be open long.
If you feel this is right for you then please schedule a free phone consultation with me.
